What the Diasynchronoscope reveals about perception of apparent motion – by Carol MacGillivray Bruno Mathez and Dr Etienne B. Roesch

We discussed how the Diasynchronsocope brings the viewer into a shared space allowing for an enactive embodied perception and the impact this could have on future perceptual experiments.

Journal: Co-Authored Narrative Experience: Affective Embodied Interaction through Combining the Diachronic with the Synchronistic 

Abstract: Examination of perception tends to look at senses in isolation but Neuroaesthetics and Gestalt design principles treat perception as an embodied synaesthetic experience. The Diasynchronoscope project takes time-based techniques from animation and converts them to spatiality animating static objects through projected light and creating transient visual cues that when combined with sound demand selective attention. The work challenges the use of passive nouns to describe participants such as ‘user’ or ‘audience’ or ‘viewer’ and instead asks participants to recognise their true position to be that of ‘exegete’ reading and interpreting the gaps in space and time. Their interaction with the work provides narrative meaning transcending the static and hidden to create a Gestalt systemic whole making each participant a truly immersed co-creator. Using audience analysis the paper evaluates the work against more traditional media such as screen-based visuals and makes the case for further research into somatic perception of dynamics.

International Symposium on Computational Aesthetics in Graphics Visualization and Imaging

Paper: Developing a System of Screen-less Animation for Experiments in Perception of Movement presented by Carol and Bruno at the eighth annual symposium on computational aesthetics in Annecy France

Computational Aesthetics bridges the analytic and synthetic by integrating aspects of computer science philosophy psychology and the fine applied & performing arts. It seeks to facilitate both the analysis and the augmentation of creative behaviours. CAe also investigates the creation of tools that can enhance the expressive power of the fine and applied arts and furthers our understanding of aesthetic evaluation perception and meaning.

The conference brings together individuals with technical experience of developing computer based tools to solve aesthetic problems and people with artistic/design backgrounds who use these new tools.

Paper: Co-authored Narrative Experience: Affective embodied interaction through combining the diachronic with the synchronistic

Presented at DeSForM 2012 7th International Workshop on the Design & Semantics of form and movement to be held at Victoria University of Wellington New Zealand on the 15th of April 2012.

Abstract. Examination of perception tends to look at senses in isolation but Neuroaesthetics and Gestalt design principles treat perception as an embodied synaesthetic experience. The Diasynchronoscope project takes time-based techniques from animation and converts them to spatiality animating static objects through projected light and creating transient visual cues that when combined with sound demand selective attention. The work challenges the use of passive nouns to describe participants such as ‘user’ or ‘audience’ or ‘viewer’ and instead asks participants to recognise their true position to be that of ‘exegete’ reading and interpreting the gaps in space and time. Their interaction with the work provides narrative meaning transcending the static and hidden to create a Gestalt systemic whole making each participant a truly immersed co-creator. Using audience analysis the paper evaluates the work against more traditional media such as screen-based visuals and makes the case for further research into somatic perception of dynamics.
